Maga’s Daughter by Andrew Wyeth (1966)


"It’s my wife, Betsy.... The colour of those cheeks under her coal black hair and that hat gives the portrait a real edge.
Really caught her. It’s more than a picture of a lovely looking woman. It’s blood rushing up. Portraits live or not on such fine lines! What makes this, is that odd, flat Quaker hat and the wonderful teardrop ribbons and those flushed cheeks. She could be a Quaker girl who’s just come in from riding….” -- Andrew Wyeth quoted at my daily art display

She was probably just glad A.W. was spending some time with her instead of "painting" that Helga girl over at the Kuerners.
